Shortly before her sixth birthday, her parents inexplicably disappeared – and now she thinks she has found a clue. And so she sets out for a strange city, accompanied only by her cat. On the very first night, sitting in a miserable housing block, freezing in her rain-soaked clothes, she spots a tent lit up red and yellow that holds a magical attraction for her.

Katya, on the other hand, the owner of the pub where Amber’s father was last seen, not only offers her a job but is always there for her, too. But can Amber be sure that the boy isn’t the person sending her the terrible threatening letters?

José is on the way to the isla maldita to discover why people call it “curse island” and to find out if there is any truth in the tales of its legendary treasure. He takes Jonathon along and the two travellers are gradually joined by a variety of animals, as a rice rat, a penguin, an iguana, a flamingo and several other members of the animal kingdom find their way onto the boat as if by magic. They all help to raise Jonathon’s spirits and help him face life again.
It becomes clear that the Mariposa is being followed and José seems to have a map on board that a few other people would dearly love to lay their hands on, too. The stowaway José and Jonathon discover one night is also after the map. In the end, he is the one who realises that Jonathon is really a girl.
Marit and José survive storms and volcanic eruptions to arrive, at last, on the isla maldita. The map leads them to the treasure, which turns out to be nothing but a freshwater spring – which is disappointing, too, for the people who had been on the Mariposa’s tail.

On the island, Marit also discovers a second treasure: her family who had in turn believed her dead. They had flown the war to the safety of the Galapagos Islands Marit’s mother had dreamed of all her life. José returns to his native island but remains in contact with Marit. | 11 +
